Dear Colleague,


I am delighted to include the link to the latest edition of ‘Care Matters’ with this months Carers Oxfordshire update Care-Matters-Summer-2013.pdf .


National Carers Week 10-16th June


We are really excited about the forthcoming National Carers Week programme. The theme this year is ‘Prepared to Care’ and Carers Oxfordshire along with partners, colleagues and carers have been working hard to create a programme of events and activities to raise the profile of carers and celebrate their caring role. We do hope many of you will be able to join us during the week and attached is a pdf of the events and activities planned so far.  More events are being added daily! For further details please contact us on the telephone number below or check the events calendar on our website


Also attached is our ‘Prepared to Care’ brochure which brings today all the training and development opportunities available in Oxfordshire for carers that we are currently aware of. If there are any others that have not been included we would love to hear about them so that when we update the brochure they can be listed too.


Please can I ask as always that you pass on this information to your teams, colleagues and any carers you are in contact with so that we can ensure that all Oxfordshire’s carers are aware of the support, information and advice available to them?  Further information about how we can help can be found on our website or by telephoning 0845 050 7666.


Thank you as always for your ongoing and continuing help which is invaluable to us and in particular to the carers we support. I hope June is warm and sunny for you all!
